Green Action Group Occupies Forest

The Green Action Group Groenfront! has threatened to block AWACS planes from the NATO base in Geilenkirchen in Germany from flying over Dutch territory. In the meantime the group has occupied a forest close to the Dutch border which is also close to the runway of the aircraft base. Activists have built huts in the treetops in order to prevent the Dutch Ministry of Defense from cutting down trees which are close to the runway.,1
